The Toronto Star reports on what's happened to the farm where the great Northern Dancer was born and is buried. Windfields Farm in Oshawa, Ontario was closed in 2009, and since then has “fallen victim to nature, vandals and bureaucracy:”
“And, to the dismay of horse lovers and Windfields enthusiasts, a memorial park at the burial grounds where 15 champions are interred is still years away.”
“I cry inwardly to see what has become of that place,” says lifelong Oshawa resident Bob Hooper, who calls himself its biggest fan. “That was where movie stars, royalty and business tycoons went to see the horses.”
